King Harald of Norway has sent his congratulations to the new King of Denmark, joining the other monarchs of Europe in sending their well wishes.

The King addressed his message to both King Frederik and Queen Mary saying he is “confident that you will flourish in your new role.”

He also paid a short tribute to Queen Margrethe, whom he was very close to, by saying she “fulfilled her function with exceptional commitment.”

King Harald’s full message can be read below:

“Your Majesties,
Dear Frederik and Mary

“My family and I wish to convey our warmest congratulations to you as Denmark’s new King and Queen.

“You are succeeding a monarch who has fulfilled her function with exceptional commitment. Her Majesty Queen Margrethe has followed her country and her people through times of joy and sorrow with warmth, wisdom and dedication. For more than 50 years she has devoted herself to Denmark – with infectious humour accompanied by deep insight and knowledge. And with the staunch support of her immediate family. The close friendship between our two families means a great deal to all of us.

“Now it is your turn to carry the legacy forward and follow Denmark into a new age. I am confident that you will flourish in your new role.

“My family and I hope and pray that you will be given the strength and support that you need to carry out your calling.”
